The fatherless and the widows who live in your towns may come and eat and be satisfied, and so that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands. Dueteronomy 14:29

Praises & a YARD SALE

Thank you from the deepest place in our hearts for all of you who prayed and/or fasted with us and so many others on behalf of the orphan. Your comments/emails brought tears to our eyes and so much joy to our home last week. God heard! And He has been moving big mountains ever since. Linny has been keeping track and posting some of the amazing stories if you want to read some and be amazed by our Lord.  But I can’t help but share that 3 – THREE! – children have been pried from the enemy’s grip and released to their loving, forever families! These cases were extreme and nothing short of a miracle!


Her lungs appear to be free of infection! What a miracle! The power of prayer, the voice of His children, our God is faithful…thank you for being a part of that work…and we wait expectantly for more to come. (stick around and I’ll keep the updates coming) We are continuing to pray for soon-travel, even October. HE.IS.ABLE.

When we heard we might have the opportunity to travel sooner than expected to bring our kids home, my incredible husband shifted into typical male-mode:  ACTION!  In one long night he cleared out our entire garage, which ellicited several embarrising comments from neighbors over the next few days, inlcuding "Are you moving?"  and "This is far to unorganized for garage sale, so WHAT is going on here?!"  Yes, our garage was that bad, which has turned into a major blessing with hundreds of items to SELL!!!  Including a nice high pub table and solid pine dresser!'s YARD SALE TIME!

My sister and her husband have offered to host it at their home and several families are contributing their own "treasures" to the sale.  We are praying this effort will bring us a few clicks closer to the ransom total we need to bring our kids home.  If you have any items of your own we would be blessed to add them to our lot.  We will provide drop-off addresses or gladly pick them up if needed, just let us know through a comment or email.  We will also have baked goods available, so if you have a prize-winning recipe you'd like to share we would love that!  Thank you all for you encouragement and loving support!  Please stop by and say HI if you have a minute this weekend!

A wonderful new friend shared this with me recently (thank you, S):

"Whom have I in heaven but you?

And earth has nothing I desire besides you.

My flesh and my heart may fail,

but God is the strength of my heart

and my portion forever."
Psalm 73:25-26

"But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will SOAR on wings like eagles; they will RUN and not grow weary, they will WALK and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31
